Photographer, Kareem Black and I were back at it on Sunday shooting behind the scenes of SummerSlam at the Barclays Center. One year ago, we started this bts project together going to the biggest events and even a non-televised event to capture a unique look at the shows. The crowd at this year’s SummerSlam was intense and the matches were big. In addition to the gallery, we put together a highly successful Instagram Story.
Here are a few of my favorite shots. See the entire gallery HERE.
